EAEA Country Reports 2019 published

For the sixth year in a row EAEA presents its country reports – a civil society view of adult education in Europe. These country reports are based on surveys filled in by our members from 30 different European countries, helping to give a voice to civil society organisations and grass roots movements in adult education on a European stage.

This is the last edition that will take this format, as, from now on, we will be presenting the country reports on a new database – making it even easier to compare situations year by year, and country by country, as well as providing an opportunity for researching policy relating to specific areas – ‘Upskilling Pathways’ for example.

The country reports provide a means for:

  • Informing colleagues and adult education stakeholders across Europe with developments and recommendations for your country
  • Comparison between your situation and that of other countries or regions in Europe over the past six years
  • Provide inspiration on innovative practices for colleagues and policy makers

The country specific information on adult education policy could act as a tool for influencing the European Semester, the cycle of yearly economic and structural policy coordination from the European Commission.

Outreach and access to learning during the coronavirus pandemic

One question currently unites all educational sectors: how can learning and teaching be organised during the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe, and how can marginalised groups be included? Measures to contain the outbreak forced schools, universities, adult education centres and other educational institutions to suspend all face-to-face learning offers. Barriers to learning that have existed for learners from vulnerable groups before the pandemic are reinforced through the rules for “social distancing”, report EAEA members from all over Europe.

Digital learning as a challenge and opportunity

As individuals and families across Europe find themselves “social distancing” or in quarantine at home, many have had to adapt to new ways of working and learning remotely. At the same time, a large number of e-learning offers for children, young people and adults have been advertised in social media. Should we be recognising this time, while strange and scary, as an opportunity for self-improvement, for personal development, for empowerment through e-learning?

How adult education can promote better public health

In such unprecedented times as now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the world calls for new approaches to health and modern medicine. Non-formal adult learning provides an opportunity to create better health practices year-round. Not to mention how adults with a good understanding of their health and their health choices are more likely to follow medical advice closely: something exceptionally important right now to protect us, our families, and our communities.
